reverse lens on Fuji X for macro, lens to sensor distance

Hello,

I've tried to experiment again with an X mount to 52mm male filter thread adaptor and an 58mm M42 lens on it, in reverse. I could not get anything sharp in any distance and focus setting. Than, I thought I should increase the distance btw the sensor and the lens. I mounted a Fuji X to Nikon F converter, than a nikon F to 52mm filter thread converter, than the same lens in reverse. I was able to focus to about 15cm distance. Nothing closer and image quality was really bad. As I see I should play with the sensor to lens distance, I tried to hand hold the lens, but I could not make it work.

Do you know how to determine the correct distance btw the sensor and the lens? It would be much better to determine the correct distance somehow and order spacers for that, than having something big and bulky adjustable solution.

Thanks,

JG
